I want to wake up and know, really know
what it’s like to wake up without stress.
Will it be when I’m finally financially
secure and sure of what each day will bring?
When I wake up in a queen size sleep number
mattress in a glass penthouse like on tv?
I know materialistic materials should not
define pleasure, but I’m a young man
who only wants to feel wanted and to own
nice things that could symbolize success.
I dream of donning dapper denim and dancing
nights away without regrets then falling asleep
with a beautiful, benevolent woman
who has that smile that could rewire one’s mind.
It is then I realize that in her arms
is when I feel this feeling-
looking into her shamrock colored eyes
as the marigold rays bathe the room in elegance.
